MEL TORME - Too Darn Hot

Don't know about you, but I'm ready for the heat wave to just go away.

I thought the smoke was bad in SLC

 Ho.  Lee.  Shit.  Montana.

Incommunicado

 Going to where there is no internet for a while.  I've got a few songs pre-loaded, and I'll see y'all when I get back.  Gotta go to work.

Apparently, Black Rifle Coffee Company forgot a very important lesson

 Ya dance with who brung ya.  Also, Get Woke, Go Broke.

“The racism [expletive] really pisses me off,” Hafer said. “I hate racist, Proud Boy-ish people. Like, I’ll pay them to leave my customer base. I would gladly chop all of those people out of my [expletive] customer database and pay them to get the [expletive] out.” 

Racist, Proud Boy-ish people?  Apparently, Evan Hafer never bothered to see just who the leadership of the Proud Boys is:



His name is Enrique Tarrio.  

I wasn't big into BRCC as a drink, because the Mrs and I support Mystic Monk (link in the sidebar under "Be A Man").  Now in retrospect, I'm happy that I supported a godly institution rather than BRCC.  I get stabbed in the back far less.

Vaccine hesitancy is "well-informed"

One of the people I know who's most opposed to the jab is also one of the smartest people I know.

But most vaccine skepticism, if by that we mean reluctance, is not based on conspiracy theorizing — it’s based on risk-benefit calculations. You may think it’s an innumerate calculation. But when you look at patterns of uptake in the United States, two factors stand out, factors that are larger in their effect than partisanship: age and density. The older you are and the denser your community, the more likely you are to be vaccinated. The younger you are, and the more rural your community, the less likely you are to have gotten it. This reflects the real facts about the risk of death from COVID. People may be wildly overestimating their risk from the vaccine and underestimating their risks from COVID — but they have the directional thinking correct. Those who are in less danger, act like it.

The absolute risk reduction for me if I get the jab is less than 1%.  

LESS THAN 1%.

Why would I take the risk of all the negative side effects for a less than 1% absolute risk reduction?  But when you start talking actual numbers, you get called everything but a white boy.  By idiots and morons who trust the government.  Yeah.
